It actually increases the likeleyhood that they will get filtered, noticed, and fixed by the owner of the ip space. If a few of us filter them, and they start to get used as amplifiers, they will start to notice a bit more (hopefully) that their connectivity is starting to suck, by sending out all these icmp replies, and track it down. - Jared -- Work: firstname.lastname@example.org - We Make The Internet Work for Your Business 9-5pm(ET) 800 637 4424x2634 - 24x7 NOC - 800 424 3223 pgp key available via finger from email@example.com
